Big Build Day – Sunday 8th May

8 May, 2011 at 21:00

A big thank you to all who turned up and helped today. We had a good turn out and the rain held off after an early shower – there was even a bit of sunshine!
There were several new faces, a bunch of Grimey Lymies, three of the FC staff and our regular trail crew – 24 volunteers in total. As usual, we couldn’t have managed anywhere near as much without your efforts.


The new start to the trail will take riders directly into the dense trees missing out the fire road and top corner of the concert site – no more trail closures when there are big events on. With your help, the section is almost finished with only a bit more surfacing required. To add some spice, there’s a wood and rock option that when it’s completed will give riders a taste of what’s to come …


Please obey the trail closed signs – by all means have a look. If the trail beds down as expected, it shouldn’t be too long before we can open it.
